Cream of Spinach

Just got a gigantic bag of spinach at Costco and don't know what to do with it? Here is a recipe that will make a Coscto size spinach package disappear in minutes. That whole bag will cook down to only 4 servings and you will again have your fridge space back for other food items.

2lb baby spinach
2 tbsp butter
4-5 garlic cloves, chopped finely
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup whipping cream
1 tbsp all purpose flour
salt to taste

Wash the spinach and without drying it place it in the pan and cook covered for about 5-10 minutes. Don't worry, its not too much, it will cook down to a reasonable amount.

Drain the access water and place on the cutting board.

Cut into small pieces. Knife works fine, but I found this pizza cutter to work the best.

Heat up butter and add chopped garlic to it as soon as it melts.

Stir for about a minute, then add chopped spinach. Salt to taste and stir.

Add milk and whipping cream. When it starts to boil again, add flour and stir in in well.

Cook for another 2-3 minutes stirring occasionally. The mixture will thicken up

Serve with fresh bread or as a side for a meat dish.
